Windows 7: What do you do with your old hardware?

I donate my old desktops to the salvation army.. cheaper than paying $50 to have the city come pick them up. By the time I get done with them, they're not worth anything anyway

I keep them, which has lead to a huge stack of old 4gb internal hard drives in my house. When I see a old computer that needs saving at yard sale or something...I save it.......and never use it again. I could sell them but they would only go for 10 cents a piece.

Oh, well. Those PCs were good back in the day of dial-up and floppy disks.

Something like this?
I'd still get better performance from a single Core 2 Quad, and MUCH better power efficiency. But it would be kinda fun to build

That's way too complicated for my burned-out brain cells to even think about building.
Maybe DocBrown could build you a flux capacitor to power it all.
